Some debate here between the superchip and the diablo predator. How much are you looking to tear into the engine? if you want to do a cam/heads then the predator hands down. For basic tuning (CAI & exhaust) then either the superchip or predator. The predator has more options than the superchip so you can change tire diameter to re-spec your odo/spedometer not to mention about 29 other variables, even advance timing or shift points (not recommended except for advanced users though)

I'd suggest the Predator. While stock, you still have quite a few programming options to use.

If you modify your engine, the flexibility of the Predator to utilize custom tunes outshines most of the other programmers out there.

And, if you have a DiabloSport authorized CMR tuner in your area, a custom tune on a dyno is a fantastic upgrade. And the tool can store this tune + up to 4 additional tunes.

So in this case, you can buy one programmer and use it for all conditions!

Please help me understand the tuner issue better. I know it changes the program. But why would I store 4 different tunes?

Diablo is the choice for the 05. Good canned tunes with option for custom tunes.

Holy 4-year-old-thread revival


Good on ya for using the search function though,
I think Diablo is phasing out the Predator and replacing it with the InTune, much nicer looking unit for sure.

BTW, its not a Chip....chips are for Kids, real ram owners buy Tuner/Programmers

Default Had the same question

Saw this the thread. Just wanted to double check and see if the diablo is still the best one out. My truck is also stock aside from exhaust intake stuff. Just looking for a little extra help. Thanks
